Roger Waters - The Wall To Be Released! The long awaited film, that had it's world premiere in Toronto last year, is set to be released later this year. The movie is an immersive concert experience of the classic Pink Floyd album and delivers an anti-war message. Part road movie, it follows Roger as he travels through France and Italy, visiting war memorials that have personal resonance. Written and directed by Waters and Sean Evans, the film, accompanied by an “in conversation” with Roger, will have a global event cinema release on September 29 at 7:30 PM in each time zone. Tickets will go on sale in the US summer. The concert portion of the film was shot in 4K and mixed in Dolby Atmos during Waters’ sold-out 2010-13 “The Wall Live” tour. The shows were seen by more than 1.5M in North America, 1M across Latin and Central America and 1M in Europe. It was the biggest worldwide tour by a solo artist ever. More details will be coming closer to the event.

RIP Doug Sax 1936-2015 Known as “the father of modern mastering” Sax passed away April 2nd after a battle with cancer. His association with Pink Floyd began with his mastering of their 1979 release The Wall, and he mastered all subsequent of the band’s releases as well as solo albums released by Roger Waters and David Gilmour. This was also the start of Sax’s partnership with producer/engineer James Guthrie, the two collaborated on dozens of 5.1 Surround and stereo mastering projects for various artists. Sax’s facility The Mastering Lab, founded in 1967, was world-famous with Sax and his colleagues credited for hundreds of releases including many Grammy-award winning projects. Sax was also the winner of numerous TEC awards and the AES Lifetime Honorary Membership Award. (With thanks to Julie Skaggs)
